  • I'm Picture Perfect!

The second version of the chronologically-first ''Hannibal Lector'' series includes a prologue showing how the hero caught Hannibal, who was at the time helping said cop crack a serial murder case. Since the cop was nearly killed in the process, he has retreated to a quiet life in the country. Now, there is a new serial killer on the loose, and the cop's boss persuades him to help. This means interviewing Hannibal again, leading to a battle of wits. Meanwhile, the serial killer continues his killing spree, knocking off those who get too close to him...

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: I found this quite enjoyable, probably because I am of the same personality type as the protaganists, and enjoyed their mind games. (We're all INTJ, as was Clarise in ''Silence of the Lambs''). FWIW, I also figured out the key long before the cop did, perhaps that was the filmmaker's intention. It reminded me a great deal of ''Lambs'', both in plot structure and the interplay between Hannibal and the cop. It doesn't have quite the shock value of ''Lambs'', but ''Lambs'' is a tough act to follow, anyway. The US reviews have been so-so, saying that the only reason this version exists (when ''Manhunter'', the original version, was more than adequate) is because the producers smelt money in another Hannibal movie with Anthony Hopkins.
